Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things–to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.
Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is.
The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the existence she always wanted?
The main character Carolyn Jenkins is the type of person I would hang out with and not because we are close in age but because she is very down to earth. She was also a good example of how your childhood and your relationship with your parents can affect you love life. She wasn’t the domestic type of girl but It seemed her mother wasn’t either. Her bond was with her father which could explain why she felt a “soul slip” with Jeep aka Money. Being that he’s older than her.
